Ömer Doğan (known to everyone as “Oscar”) moved to Turunç from his native Cappadocia in 1992. Having worked in the travel industry for a number of years, Oscar opened his Souvenir Gift Shop in 2007. Since then he has been amazing visitors with a huge range of traditional Turkish gifts from his native region.
Over the winter of 2015/16, Oscar's shop moved - but don't worry ... it's only next door! With some careful redesign, Oscar has managed to create more display and browsing space in his new premises!
Each winter, Oscar makes the long journey home to select next season's range. He visits individual craftsmen and women in their homes where they create these wonderful products - much as they have always done - for us to enjoy.
Oscar Souvenir Gift Shop has a large range of beautiful, authentic, Turkish products including:
New products for 2017 include ... Ottoman table and bottle lamps and some simply stunning 3, 5 and even 15 bowl ceiling lamps. Do get Oscar to tell you the history of the Hurrem design table lamp - Hurrem (or Roxelana) was the wife of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent and a powerful (and controversial) figure in her own right. Also this year, Oscar has a new range of traditional Turkish cushions and new designs of "şalvar" - traditional Turkish baggy trousers which are always very fashionable.
Oscar Souvenir Gift Shop is centrally located on the main street in the village between the corner of the harbour road and the river bridge. Oscar is open every day from early April through to end October from 8.30am until midnight. Oscar accepts payment in a variety of currencies and also accepts all major credit cards. Gifts can be safely wrapped for travel home.
